The Button Biting Trick by D. Angelo Ferri

An unusual effect that is introduced in the manuscript with a cartoon drawn by Chauncey Pierce. Dennis in his own words:

The Button Biting Trick is something I rarely see performed by other magician's, I have enjoyed and benefited form this routine for many years. It is a great way to let people know you are a magician. My original investigations of the routine led me to Malini and Scarne. I have developed my own method to make the effect more 'mentally acceptable' to the spectator. My grandfather was a tailor; buttons are not easily bitten off a coat. The trick rises and falls upon the spectator believing it is possible to bite off a button, so we must condition him to believe what we want him to believe.

This 10 page manuscript contains instructional photographs and my description for producing the sound of the thread snapping as the button is ripped form the coat. The routine is a powerful lesson on how advanced preparation will enable you to perform a seemingly impromptu miracle.
